Marcus Nispel will be directing the film and Conan should be in theaters by summer of 2011. Shooting will start in mid-March in Bulgaria.

well, I’m torn:
on the one hand I love Jason Momoa, he was my absolute favorite character on Stargate Atlantis, he’s good-looking, a solid actor and he’s got great fighting skills (or at least he knows how to mimic fighting very well…)
on the other hand, is it really such a great idea to shoot a remake of Conan the Barbarian ? I mean this movie is iconic, what if the movie’s bad? does this mean we’ll never see Jason anywhere ever ??

plus I think Jared Padalecki would have been really hot as a half-naked barbarian :))

yay cuz Mickey Rourke might be in it!

That’s fine. Personally, I would’ve preferred Jared Padalecki, simply because I love him dearly, but that’s ok. Jared’s busy with Supernatural anyway.

i think he deserved it. he’s pretty hot without all that beard

Yay! Just like I predicted! Great choice! :)

It was a nice choice. He looks like Cona, he’s a good actor.
Let’s see what that boy can do.

Sure, why not?

Great choice..only problem the first Conan was horrible, I hope this one is much better..

YAY!! He’s a great actor and was really good on Stargate. Better than that douchebag Kellan Lutz!!!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY !!!! HE IS SOO HOT ! ! I AM SO JEALOUS OF LISA BONET

Absolutely yay! He has the physicality and the look. I think he will do great.

YESSSSSS! I was hoping they would be smart and pick the right guy. The others are just pretty boys with OK acting skills. Jason is SEXY and a fab actor.

YAY! Great choice, not many people know about Jason Mamoa but he’s super talented and hott to boot. I can’t wait for the movie!

yay for jason!!! he was the perfect choice!!!
